Product Description
Prior to reading The Kite Runner, I have found it helpful to have my students explore several topics related to the novel and to help provide the historical and cultural details several students lack in regards to the past several decades in the area of Kabul, Afghanistan over the past several decades.

This activity provides 26 topics for students to choose from and a rubric that can be used or modified in grading mini Power Point / Google Slide presentations. In this way, students will have an opportunity to explore several facets of the novel and will gain a fuller understanding of the history and culture of Afghanistan prior to beginning the novel.

This activity can also be modified for teachers who wish to assign informational visual posters to display in place of student Presentations. I have also provided a suggested grading rubric.
